it's something that i kept personal. and i think a lot of people do with chronic illnesses or, you know, any type of disease, you know, whether it's heart or whatever you deal with, you know, breast cancer, so for me, i kept it personal because i never wanted to be judged. never wanted to have pity and i certainly wanted to hold on to my job. so -- and i think, you know, we're making strides in america every year but maybe at this time, with the white house and everything that took place, maybe all this happened for a reason and i can do something good to help someone else. >> and you know, that -- one thing that, you know, michaele and i'm very proud of her coming out and talking about this, but instead of running and keeping her head in the sand, you know, stay out there. live a life. do what needs to be done. >> rye. you can have a great life. >> you can have a great life. >> many people do. >> people will be very shocked to find that out today. we hope your health continues in the right direction. we appreciate you telling your story here on "fox & friends"
